This is a weakass pandemic. Low single digit mortality? Blah blah blah. Next pandemic better bring it. 20-30% mortality at least. Bodies piled up in the streets. Then people will take it seriously.

This is how Nashville is working now. God knows I don't miss working the 10pm-2:30am shifts. Not sure if the science behind it all is sound, or working - reliable information isn't easy to come by, thanks to my dopey peers and social media.

After Boomers have spent years actively showing contempt for younger generations, now it turns out there's a disease that disproportionately affects old people and the younger generations aren't all that worried about it.  I wonder why?

I feel like maybe some of the problem is from otherwise-intelligent people seeing open bars and restaurants and having thoughts that start with, "if there was really a risk, then these places wouldn't be allowed to open at all, so...."

Maybe that's part of "quarantine fatigue."  IDK.

Overall curfews are counterproductive.  The goal is to get people to socially distance.  So, one goal is to get places like stores to be less crowded.  The government should be encouraging them to be open longer hours, not shorter.  If they are open shorter hours, they will just be more crowded when they are open.

As for young people thinking they won't get seriously sick, they are almost certainly right.

The risk of getting ill, getting seriously ill, and dying from this disease increase exponentially with age.

The average age of those who have died from this disease is over 80.

Government warnings like "Don't go out you'll get sick and die" aimed at young people aren't going to work, because that's mostly a lie.

The warning should be "Don't go out you'll spread the virus and your grandmother will get sick and die".  Tell the farking truth.

It's not a gas station where you can spread out your customer base over 24 hours. You're either there after 9 or you're practicing your pickup moves on a bathroom poster of Pam Anderson.

Yeah, one could make an argument about bars, but the question really should be whether or not they should be open at all.  IE, the point of a bar is less to drink and more to be social while drinking (you can drink at home and it's cheaper), which is counterproductive to social distancing.  Having them close at a certain hour doesn't fix anything and arguably makes the problem worse via increasing overcrowding.

I work at a bar in PA.  Our governor just set a 10PM last-call curfew on bars effective Sept 21st.

Can confirm, after 10 PM social distancing goes out the window and boisterous drunk people spewing spittle everywhere goes up dramatically.

I'm ok with the curfew.

So let's see what you got, another strawman from MAGA favorite NYPost, as if this represents the thousands of activists who have taken to the streets to protest, and being hung up on Covid deaths while if you had been paying attention to recent news you'd know the real scary issue is the lasting physical and mental damage this virus seems to be doing even to young people with mild cases. We could be looking at millions of newly disabled people by next year whose lifestyle will be impacted by their new limitations. We could be looking at a sudden catastrophic drop in life expectancy in a couple of decades as chronic illness from exposure comes to light. It's such a distraction to say "only 1% of people die" or whatever fudged percentage they're coming up with.

I doubt it will be easy for them to get disability.  Remember "Gulf War Syndrome"?  And how hard it was fought to prove it wasn't really a thing?

Fighting for COVID related disabilities with vague, lifelong impacts is going to involve so many lawyers trying to get their beak wet, it will make "Gulf war syndrome" look like a walk in the park.

I told my parents that's the exact reason this keeps happening.

If this was... ebola levels of killing people would take it seriously.

"Holy shiat, Bob got it and died the next day!"

But... too many people don't know anyone who got it and the body count has tapered down so people get a false sense of security.

I live in British Columbia. My wife and I drove past the local farmer's market and it was wall to wall people with not a mask to be seen. We deserve to be locked down again honestly.
